General Emulator Discussion / Radar images
« on: June 04, 2011, 09:33:26 AM »
I know there hasn't been too much activity lately but I have a slight suggestion for the next release if possible. Right now I am on extremely limited hard drive space, and I noticed that the program continuously adds on images for the radar maps. Whenever I am finished running the program I must delete the images in order to conserve space. I realize that I could just manually repeat that process after each run, but I was wondering if you could have it so the program uses a static number of images (ex. 1L-10L). Thank you for your time.

General Emulator Discussion / Data question
« on: November 14, 2010, 02:20:29 PM »

Out of curiosity what source does the program obtain the weather data from? Is the NWS xml feed? Wunderground? I ask because whatever you are using seems to be an excellent one, and I would like to use it for my own weather program.

P.S. Brian, if you are ever available to talk privately for a few, please let me know.

Local Forecast / XL current conditions question
« on: October 10, 2010, 11:24:14 AM »

I always wondered how the XL displayed the current conditions. I've watched plenty of XL videos but I havent seen any with more uncommon conditions such as sleet, rain/snow, etc. I guess i'm asking what the conditions displayed were. Like did it display "rain/snow" or "rain and snow" etc. I dont know if you guys would know about this but just thought i'd ask just in case. Thanks :happy:

Local Forecast / Weather Warning Question
« on: September 19, 2010, 08:31:50 AM »

I was just curious how the watch/warning/advisory modes work. I notice that the most warnings are in red but not all. Same for watches. Come to think of it the only watch i've seen in yellow is a t'storm watch.  :thinking: Does anybody know how these colors are assigned?

General Discussion / Weatherscan Emulator (Download link)
« on: September 08, 2010, 05:57:45 PM »
Hi, this may sound crazy but I am making a Weatherscan XL v1 emulator. Yes I am aware of Brians weatherscan v2 emulator right here at the forums, which of course was my very inspiration to make one, but mine will probably look shameful next to his. I desperately need the help of TWC experts like you guys. I need graphics (animated icons, maps) info about the XL (names of the fonts used, how LDL works). I am calling upon the kind help of you guys! Can anybody help me?  :dunno:

BTW I have my own forums here:

And my apologies admin if this is not the right place for this..

EDIT: I have most of what I need now

Local Forecast / TWC Showing Different Intellistar??
« on: June 25, 2010, 07:04:36 PM »
About an hour ago a tiny gray bar popped up at the bottom-left corner of the screen and TWC started showing the Aberdeen/Bel Air, MD Intellistar instead of my area's (Columbia, MD). I've got absolutely no idea what the heck is going on!! :blink: I'll try to get a pic or something up later.

Everything Else TWC / TWC Mobile Still Using XL Icons?
« on: January 02, 2010, 11:55:39 PM »
I got a new phone for Christmas and the other day I found something intersting on the "MediaNET" homepage...(MediaNET = the internet for phones). When I scrolled down to "weather" section I realized that the weather icons were none other than the XL icons! Heres a pic of the screen. Sorry about the bad quality, it's a webcam shot.

General Emulator Discussion / Old Radar Maps Found
« on: December 14, 2009, 05:58:58 PM »
After a long time browsing, I found the old radar maps. They seem to be very hidden and the only way to access them is by clicking a tiny link called "Classic Local Maps". And if i'm not mistaken Brian this area map is almost the exact map that your weatherscan local used:

I don't know if these maps can be implemented into the emulator or not but just thought I'd bring it up just in case.

Local Forecast / Weatherstar Jr. Guide
« on: December 04, 2009, 08:11:01 PM »
Not sure if this is the right place for this but does anyone have the jr.'s product guide? I'm trying to create an emulator. Thanks.  ;)

Hi, I just got another computer and I wanted to ask your permission if I may install the emulator that computer as well.
